Please help me to convince people that
COMMON SENSE IS NOT THE SAME THING AS SCIENCE.
Yes CS if nothing else is available but it really is a collection of other people's experiences not necessarily of experts. It contains impurities like "old Wives Tales' and hearsay . The ' Common sense ' brigade gets on the march when anyone in authority tries to tell you what to do and appears in the form of mild rebellion.
This analogy leads to the following comparison
"Common sense compared to science is like comparing 'Dad's Army' to the SAS"
Dads army is making the best of what you have got after everything else fails and SCIENCE is like the SAS which is a cutting edge top notch unit.
and Donald Trump is like Pyke and the spivvy one(Private Walker) mixed together always making a tweet and buck from rubbish. Photo from the BBC
It's an uphill battle. I've tried for decades...now happily retired, and convinced that there's 100 different interpretations of "common sense"...and a poor understanding of "fact-based-research" or as we Science teachers call it, the S.M.
I find this cartoon video explaining the "common sense" of the #Trumpster comforting...
